The motto references a holistic packaging concept
As a technology company and pioneer of the circular economy, for decades Schütz has adhered to a fully comprehensive holistic packaging concept. This philosophy is expressed in this year’s trade fair motto, “Containing everything that matters”. The demands on packaging as a logistics tool ideally matched to the respective supply chain are becoming increasingly complex, including not only the immediate product quality and performance, but also application-related criteria as well as the support of processes and digitalisation on the part of the customer. The global availability and security of supply of their packaging solutions also play a major role for internationally operating companies. Last but not least, the economic and also the increasingly required ecological efficiency are decisive factors when it comes to the packaging type.
At interpack, Schütz will be presenting a variety of innovations. The focus is on closed packaging cycles. Among other things, the company will be highlighting the packaging in Schütz’s new Green Layer series. The IBC inner bottles and drum bodies in this product line are made with 30% high-quality, natural-coloured recycled material, which is itself recovered as part of its worldwide collection programme for emptied packaging. In keeping with this commitment to sustainability, the company is presenting further product innovations that help to further minimise the CO2 footprint of packaging through the use of recycled material. As well as the numerous packaging innovations Schütz will be presenting as the second major focus of the fair, trade visitors will also be able to explore the current general packaging ranges. For example, the company will be showing its range of tight-head plastic drums in sizes between 30 and 220 litres as well as all closed-head drums and specialized versions.
